In the recent years, numerous research advancements have extended the limit of classical simulation of quantum algorithms. Although, most of the state-of-the-art classical simulators are only limited to binary quantum systems, which restrict the classical simulation of higher-dimensional quantum computing systems. Through recent developments in higher-dimensional quantum computing systems, it is realized that implementing qudits improves the overall performance of a quantum algorithm by increasing memory space and reducing the asymptotic complexity of a quantum circuit. Hence, in this article, we introduce \textbf{QuDiet}, a state-of-the-art user-friendly python-based higher-dimensional quantum computing simulator. \textbf{QuDiet} offers multi-valued logic operations by utilizing generalized quantum gates with an abstraction so that any naive user can simulate qudit systems with ease as compared to the existing ones. We simulate various benchmark quantum circuits in \textbf{QuDiet} and show the considerable speedup in simulation time as compared to the other simulators without loss in precision. Finally, \textbf{QuDiet} provides a full qubit-qudit hybrid quantum simulator package with quantum circuit templates of well-known quantum algorithms for fast prototyping and simulation. The complete code and packages of \textbf{QuDiet} is available at https://github.com/LegacYFTw/QuDiet so that other platforms can incorporate it as a classical simulation option for qubit-qudit hybrid systems to their platforms.
